Michael Jordan chilling in Charlotte

15 posts in this topic

at least hes making a commitment unlike Buckcat Johnson

Jordan is making a commitment to the city, I agree. As far as being committed to winning, I think he's on the same page as Bob. Both being better than Shinn ever was. Minus LJ's $75 million dollar contract, which seems like a bargain these days, the last years of the Hornets in Charlotte, saw the club trade away talent after talent! Luckily, through that entire mess, GM Bob Bass turned out some pretty good rosters.

I don't much care about him being a part of the community. I think it's pretty creepy that people care to know where MJ eats or watches a game. I guess being the big fish, in a small pond, appeals to some? Yet, MJ has shown a desire to win --- which I appreciate. Still, even when Bob was here, he wasn't afraid to resign Okafor or trade for Jason Richardson, and take on his hefty contract.

I know Shinn brought professional basketball to Charlotte and will always be owed a debt of gratitude for that. BUT Bob showed a commitment to winning that Shinn never did, and if that's not enough, he brought in MJ, who brought in Larry Brown. Larry Brown? How awesome is that.

Ignore his comment ckad79. His favorite player is "Gerald Wallace" and he credits him for being the backbone of this franchise. Yet he claims the owner who brought G-Force in, re-signed him as a FA when he had the choice not to (like Shinn did most times), and built a team around him "isnt commited". LMAO.

Its knowing that your owner isn't some guy just worried about the bottom line, that he's just as much a fan as the rest of the community. There's something almost romantic about knowing that the hometown guy has made it big and owns the franchise, but isn't about to forget where he came from.

And yes, I know MJ isn't from Charlotte.
